The Werewolf is a low-budget American 1956 science fiction horror film, produced by Sam Katzman and directed by Fred F. Sears from a script by Robert E. Kent. Like The Vampire (1957), it offers a science fiction view of a traditionally supernatural creature, although the films were by different production companies. The film's music was credited to Mischa Bakaleinikoff.[1] The Werewolf was released theatrically on a double bill with Earth vs the Flying Saucers.


Duncan Marsh (Steven Ritch), a mild-mannered man, finds himself lost in a remote village called Mountaincrest. His mind is clouded, but he learns later that Emory Forrest (S. John Launer) and Morgan Chambers (George Lynn), two scientists, injected him with a special serum containing irradiated wolf's blood when he was suffering from amnesia after being in a car accident. The wolf's blood, for unknown reasons, changed the previously gentlemanly Duncan into a vicious, bloodthirsty werewolf.


DVD release[edit]

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the film on DVD in October 2007 as part of the two-disc, four-film set Icons of Horror Collection: Sam Katzman, along with three other films produced by Katzman (Creature with the Atom Brain, The Giant Claw and Zombies of Mora Tau).[2][3]
